"5779: The Sword of Favor and Vengeance"
By Anita Alexander
"For the Lord has a day of vengeance, a year of recompense,
for the cause of Zion." (Isaiah 34:8)
9/9/18: Aren't those interesting numbers that this Rosh Hashanah falls on? It is the year of 5779 and it landed on the evening of the 9th day of the 9th month of the year 2018 (18 being double 9).
So we have 4x9 in the date alone, and 5x9s including the Hebraic year! This is no coincidence.
Dream of 999 and 4:14
In early June 2018, I had a dream regarding the number 9. I saw 999 repeatedly throughout my dream,
and as the number 9 kept showing up I said in my dream, "This is recompense, reconciliation and redemption." In the same dream, I repeatedly saw 4:14 alongside 999. In the dream I was saying, "This is now the time of Esther." I knew this meant Esther 4:14.
"Those who have gone through the seasons of purification, the seasons of fire, testing’s and trials and come out purified are now being beautified with the Lord's fragrance of favor in order to be positioned for those assignments of
"For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance shall arise for the Jews from elsewhere, but you and your father's house will perish. And who knows but that YOU HAVE COME TO THE KINGDOM FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS AND
FOR THIS VERY OCCASION?" (AMPC emphasis mine)
Interpretation: The Biblical meaning of the number 9 is "finality" or the "fullness" of God. The finality of God comes with a connotation of justice and judgment. We see that Jesus died on
the Cross on the 9th hour of the day. It was FINISHED. This sacrifice was finalized on the 9th hour and what followed was redemption, reconciliation and recompense for all those who would receive His sacrifice, both Jew and Gentile alike.
We also see that there are 9 gifts of the Spirit and 9 fruits of the Spirit, which symbolize the "fullness" of God.
The Positioning of the Government of Esther
I have literally been seeing 4:14
EVERYWHERE I go lately – especially within these last two weeks leading up to Rosh Hashanah.
The Lord began to remind me of my dream back in June and spoke to my heart saying, "This new Hebraic year 5779 is the year where I am positioning
My beloved as in Esther 4:14 – for such a time as this – to execute My justice in this season. I am bringing a finality to the cause of the enemy and turnaround for My people. Through this Esther government, the plans of the enemy will be exposed
on many levels in the seven mountains of society. Justice and finality will be brought as the Lord's people lift up their voices and keep not silent. For with much given much is required, and with promotion comes responsibility."
is Not the Time to Be Silent!
Notice in Esther 4:14 Mordecai is beseeching Esther to NOT KEEP SILENT. This is the time when the voice of the Lord's beloved needs to be heard. As she is heard, this is the time where justice, recompense
and redemption will come. This is not the time for God's people to retreat in the fear of what man can do to them! No, this is the time to be like Esther and say "...If I perish I perish" (Esther 4:16), and go forth in the FEAR OF THE LORD and see a mighty
deliverance come (see Psalm 34:7).
As the Lord's people choose to not sit passively by in the council of the ungodly and repent for doing so (if that has been the case), but speak up and stand up instead of sitting where the scorners are
(see Psalm 1), we will begin to see divine turnarounds, recompenses, restitution and unprecedented victories of advancement for the Kingdom of Heaven.
The Lord is positioning His people in this hour to be a voice into darkness and bring
a finality to the wicked, unjust plans of HAMAN!
Purification, Beautification, Presentation, and Demonstration
As Esther went through a purification and beautification process before she was presented
before the king (Esther 2:12), there are those who have been through a preparation season of purification and are now being beautified with the fragrance and favor of the Lord that will cause them to be positioned in this next season for demonstration. Their
preparation has come to its fullness (the meaning of the number 9) and now is the time for their positioning to demonstrate the Kingdom for such a time as this.
The Season of Favor and Justice
one Monday night, in a time of intercession, I had a vision of the Lord spraying perfume all around Esther, representing His prepared people. I then saw a two-edged sword being wielded and the Lord gave it to His people to wield in this season. I then heard
Him say, "This is a sword of FAVOR and VENGEANCE. For you will need favor in order to execute My righteous vengeance on the enemy in this season."
I knew this was a symbolic picture of His Bride being Esther. The fragrance and perfume
represents His anointing to adorn her with favor to be positioned in the place she needs to be – to do the job and fulfill the assignment she needs to in this season of justice. I have also been seeing 007 (secret agent assignments) in repeated fashion
lately, reminding me this is the season of positioning for the execution of those assignments. The Lord is giving new assignments of justice in this season and the Lord is positioning His beloved to fulfill and execute those assignments.
Esther's assignment, in a nutshell, was an assignment of justice to expose the evil plan of Haman to annihilate her, people the Jews, and bring about a divine turnaround. In this turnaround her people were given the right to defend themselves! She needed
the favor of God to be chosen as queen in order for her assignment to be fulfilled. So it is in this season. Those who have gone through the seasons of purification, the seasons of fire, testing’s and trials and come out purified, are now being beautified
with the Lord's fragrance of favor in order to be positioned for those assignments of justice.
"This sacrifice was finalized on the 9th hour and what followed was redemption, reconciliation and recompense for all those who would receive
His sacrifice, both Jew and Gentile alike."
We see Esther's assignment brought a reversal of a decree of death to the Jews to a decree of preserving their lives. It is very interesting to note that from the time of the new decree that
Mordecai wrote on the king's behalf (Esther 8:11), it was 9 months the Jews had to prepare themselves for conflict. Again we see that number 9 in relation to justice and divine turnaround (see Esther 8:9,12).
The Overturning of
the Decree of Abortion
One of the assignments of justice the Lord is giving out to certain ones in this season is in the family mountain, specifically regarding the laws of abortion. I see a William Wilberforce anointing coming
on many in this season. Just as William was in a position of government to speak up for those slaves who couldn't speak for themselves, so the Lord, in this season, is positioning many in more strategic, effective positions to speak up for unborn babies who
have no voice for their own existence. Just as the decree in Esther went forth in Esther 8:11 for the Jewish people to have the right to defend their own lives, there will be a new decree that will go forth which will overturn the evil decree of death. This
NEW DECREE WILL STATE THAT UNBORN BABIES HAVE THE RIGHT TO EXIST.
Season of Unprecedented Divine Appointments for Divine Turnarounds
We will see many unprecedented turnarounds in this
season as the Lord orchestrates, by His Spirit, a series of divine appointments and connections. Place a demand upon the anointing in this season. Ask for your footsteps to be ordered by Him to bring you into positions of favor that are not possible for you
in your own efforts.
If we look closely at the book of Esther we will realize this is a book of divine turnarounds. First we see a mass display of deceit, trickery, conceit, jealousy and acts of threatened violence and murder by Haman.
Then after Esther steps up to her God-given assignment we see the hand of God move and not only overturn a death decree on behalf of the Jewish people, but justice, recompense and honor is brought to Mordecai while the pride of his enemy Haman is brought to
destruction and ruin.
This is this season! In this year 5779 we will begin to see the unlocking of unprecedented turnarounds, vindication, honor, recompense, reconciliation, and redemption as the Lord positions His people in favor to speak
up for the cause of righteousness to execute finality by overruling the wicked plans and decrees of the enemy and causing justice to prevail.
